Reading Deeply

More reads from the week:

Tim Challies posts on having confidence in the Bible. Parts 1 and 2

The topic of spiritual gifts have come up a lot. It seems like it was a topic at the message last Sunday. Some perspectives:

David Wayne (PCA pastor) is a cessationalist (and he's got a huge link post on the whole conversation in 2.0)

Adrian Warnock (pastor in London) is charismatic (but still reformed!)

Both of these people are bloggers I highly respect and read often (though sometimes I feel like Adrian is just a tad obsessed over his hits per day, *chuckles but I'm just the same!)

Phillip Johnson posted Spurgeon's views

James White is doing an excellent series on "The Da Vinci Code" Parts: [1][2][3][4][5]

(OK, I shamelessly stole this from Frank Martens because I wanted to link them but didn't want to go searching through the posts)


Steven Camp on the sufficiency of preaching. How I wish the world would awaken to it's need to be teaching sheep and not entertaining goats! An excerpt:
THE PREACHER

“And when he’s burned out by the flaming Word, when he’s consumed at last by the fiery grace blazing through him, and when he’s privileged to translate the truth of God to man, finally transferred from earth to heaven, then bear him away gently and blow a muted trumpet and lay him down softly. Place a two-edged sword on his coffin, and raise the tomb triumphant. For he was a brave soldier of the Word. And ere he died, he had become a spokesman for his God."

With regards to books, I've just started Christian Baptism by John Murray. No thoughts yet (though it's really deep on the original languages, which is hard for me because I know nothing!)

Just finished "Putting the Amazing Back Into Grace" - Michael Horton. An excellent introduction into the Reformed faith. It doesn't deal with problem text so much as make a clear biblical presentation of the Reformed faith. If you don't know what the Reformed faith is, read this. If you do but don't know what's the big deal about it, read this. If you do and hate it because you learned in Sunday school that it condemns people to hell, read this. It isn't an apologetic so much a presentation, and a fairly clear one.
